Having a wedding in February comes with it’s challenges but, as a wedding photographer, you have to roll with the punches. A wedding anniversary in February helps to break up the Canadian winter and will bring cheer to what is typically the most challenging month of winter. Such is the case for Laura and Marc.
A December ice storm didn't stop Kathryn + Tim from enjoying their New Year's Eve winter wedding. I was also able to use some of the winter storm elements and my wedding photography skills to capture some gorgeous whimsical wintery shots.
Fans of winter weddings, Kayla + Jamie were happy to be able to have their November wedding at Stonefields Estate in the year-round Ceremony House. Even with a November date and the unpredictable weather that can sometimes come with the season, the sun was shining and the skies were azure for Kayla + Jamie - a perfect fit for their warm, excited hearts.
Photographing a Fall Wedding at the Brookstreet Hotel and the Marshes Golf Club in Kanata: Christine and Elliott
Christine + Elliott's fall wedding at the Brookstreet Hotel and Marshes Golf Club didn't go exactly as planned weather-wise, but that didn't make an ounce of difference to their enthusiasm and joy surrounding their day. They maintained a steady, positive attitude that was contagious to all.
Robin + Scott's Chateau Laurier wedding was elegant and classy, start to finish. The Prime Minister's Suite was a fitting backdrop for Robin's bridal prep and time spent with her bridesmaids pre-ceremony sipping champagne and sharing laughter.
Weddings at Le Belvedere are always a gorgeous affair, with Milena +Yuki's wedding being no different. As a wedding photographer, it’s the perfect location to capture a variety of stunning shots.
Partial day coverage of their wedding gave me a snapshot that their evening celebrations were going to be elegant and glamorous - just like this couple.
Sarah + Sasha knew they wanted their wedding to be meaningful and intimate, with an ode to their family cultures and traditions. Blending Sasha's Russian heritage and Sarah's family roots, they chose to have their wedding at Sarah's family home in Brockville. On wedding day, Sarah happily greeted her guests dressed in Russian tradition (wearing one of her two gorgeous floral crowns by Colonial Flowers in Brockville) and broke bread (she made!) with her future husband while their family-style meal was being prepared on-site by Victor Dries Curated Events. Then, when it was time, she and her closest family members retired to the bridal suite to dress for the ceremony while guests mingled with cocktails and appetizers. When Sarah emerged in her Powder Bride gown by Lihi Hod and made her way to the ceremony site, she literally made her stoic Russian husband-to-be crumble with emotion. The fathers officiated a ceremony filled with personal details and promise. With their kiss, everyone shared a champagne toast to the couple - the beginning of many toasts to the day, a Russian tradition that kept things flowing into the wee hours of the morning. Their tented reception was an elegant affair, beautifully executed by Victor Dries Curated Events and Colonial Flowers - a treat for both taste buds and the eyes. Sarah and Sasha's wedding day was photographed in primarily documentary style - with little direction or posing. Below are some highlights of the day to enjoy while the couple enjoys their full gallery ...
